    I would keep them separate. I've a friend with both and the game rooster is pretty aggressive toward them. He also bullies them from their food and keeps his girls away from the pheasants. He gets along well with every other bird though, even the other game rooster (who just rules a different part of the farm the pheasants aren't allowed in). General feeding and needs are easier when kept separate as well, if you're feeding your pheasants something different. I doesn't work for her when they are together. Separate there isn't a problem at her farm.

    If they get along through the fence, letting them range during the day would be a good way to start introducing them if you wanted to try it.
